Review of the Kia Sorento SLX #DriveKia

With the Kia Sorento

During April Vacation we had the distinct pleasure of testing out a Kia Sorento SXL AWD from Kia and DriveShop. This is what we thought of that ride.

Part of the April vacation was a family road trip up to the White Mountains of New Hampshire to chill out at the Pollard Brook Resort. Our ride up was a nice one. Everyone was comfortable riding in the car. It had some excellent features like Leather interior which I never truly appreciate until I have to go back to my cloth interior vehicle. There was also the UVO in dash infotainment unit which connects to both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. We did not make use of those particular features on our drive to New Hampshire but later in the week I did get to see Android Auto in action.

The Kia Sorento is a good looking vehicle and was the perfect size for our family of four. There was plenty of room between the kids so that they were not bumping into each other the whole ride. I had ample elbow room and the power adjust front seats allowed both Allison and I to get real comfortable as we rode along. Continue reading Review of the Kia Sorento SLX #DriveKia

Family Road Trip to New Hampshire

Today we drove to New Hampshire. We have a Kia Sorento to drive for the week. DriveShop and Kia provided us with the car and opinions are our own. We’re staying at a timeshare for a few days and are going to explore the area. There are some really beautiful places to see.

On our way up we stopped at Double Midnight Comics. That is a comic book shop that is owned by a couple of friends from college. The kids loved the store and enjoyed getting a few things. Eva got a DC Superhero Girls book and Andrew a Trolls comic. I got a copy of Transformers #78 from the original Marvel run. I’m still missing some of them but am closer to completing the whole run.

We continued on to Lincoln, NH and there we had lunch at a Mexican place called El Charro. There were some excellent dishes there. We got stuffed silly.

It was still a bit early to go to our timeshare so we drove around a bit and saw more of the town and the surrounding scenery. We went up to the Flume and then further up to Franconia Notch, we turned back close to Cannon Mountain. We still had some time but went to Pollard Brook early and our room was ready. The kids were so thrilled to see it. They loved that there was a room for them and also a Jacuzzi tub in our room. What they wanted most of all was to go to the pool so we got changed and hit the pool for an hour. We got back tot eh room and from there I went to get some things at the supermarket. I also picked up a pizza and salad for dinner and we had a nice meal. After dinner the kids played with some LEGO sets that they had gotten for Easter while I tried to get Google Chromecast to work. This is certainly not an exact science at this point. I’m not sure if it has something to do with the network of the timeshare or what but one phone didn’t work for it and the other did. I’m going to have to play with it some more because I brought it so that we can do some movie watching at night. Allison and I watched Doctor Strange but the sound was all kaflooey that it made it not as enjoyable.
